I fell in love with this piece when it was featured (briefly) on "Kirstie's Handmade Britain", last year. Kirstie visited the Royal Welsh Show, (where I have to say, there seem to be the MOST AMAZING craft tents), and a lady called Dilys Morgan had won best in show with this very wall hanging I freeze framed the TV, committed as much to memory as possible and went and "googled" it.
I love the unusual and the quirky, and the sheer size of this really appealed.
Well it seems to have been a long time in getting there, but I finally finished letter "L" of my Victoria Sampler. I am now officially halfway. I am loving the challenge of it and as each row is quite small, with some serious sewing time, it is possible to achieve a fair amount. I guess though, it is like all things, some days seem to be easier than others.
I have never used charms or beads before and I love how, just a sprinkle here and there adds a new dimension to the piece
I am definitely a "big project" girl and this ticks all the boxes! Onward to Letter M......
